Home Paint Color Trends & Home Staging | Williamsburg | Yorktown | New Kent County | Virginia | Tia Stanley | RE/MAX CAPITAL

The 2016 home paint color trends infograph will help you get a handle on home staging, what works, and what doesn’t. However, if you are getting your house ready to sell in #Williamsburg, #Yorktown, or New Kent County Virginia and need some extra help…great news! As part of my extraordinary home marketing program, I will provide you with a complimentary ASP© Home Staging Consultation and Tier One Staging Service as your listing agent. We have all experienced walking into a calm room and just feeling that spirit of relaxation just enveloping you. It’s a great feeling when you can bring this into your home. Just like a gloomy gray day can make some people feel sad and sunshine brings a smile, what you put on your walls may determine if a buyer writes an offer, or leaves as quickly as they can. Home Staging has been proven to increase sales price and lessen the days on market. As an ASP® home stager and your real estate agent, I get a significant discount at Sherwin Williams, so if your house needs some paint…well I can save you money.

What Home Buyers Really Want

Bringing Home Buyers and Home Sellers Together

Realtors Should Be The Strong Link Between Home Buyers & Home Sellers.

What home buyers really want is personalized service that meets them on their turf. Tailor made to make the process efficient, and possibly even enjoyable. What is important to one person is not to another. Recently I was working with some Williamsburg Virginia home buyers (who are now under contract…yay) but when we would arrive at any home the husband would walk the exterior. That’s where he started because he is looking at the structural aspects as the most important reason to either eliminate or consider the home. His wife and I would generally proceed inside where he would join us, checking the attic, the ceilings, floors, etc.

I prefer to encourage home buyers to go in the direction that pulls them because part of providing great service is paying attention to cues, body language, take a few notes, etc. It becomes easy to tell if it’s ‘the house’ when you pay attention to what someone is not saying as much as what they are saying. I ask questions. Lots of questions in order to tune in to the things that are most important. The more I know about you, the more I can help you. I cannot speak for any other agent, but I have no interest in someone buying a house that is not the right house. My goal is to explore, uncover and discover what will really make you happy, never to pressure or coerce. I will point out  and discuss the positives and definitely the negatives to minimize future problems or disappointment.

Another thing that often surprises people is the lack of emphasis on spending at the top of your price range. That I don’t feel the need to only show them the top of their price range. I really do not care if you buy the cheapest or most expensive property. Yes it determines my commission but I am more interested in a long-term relationship of referrals, repeat business and 5-star reviews because I over-delivered your expectations. Happy clients gives me the best ROI (return on investment). I decided years ago that no one single commission was ever going to change my life so much that I would compromise the service or the person to get a paycheck.

So, what do I think the majority of home buyers want? I think they want to be asked questions. I think they want to spend time looking at properties that have a chance of meeting their needs. They do not want to feel rushed or ‘sold’, although military PCS moves often focuses on time frame. Buyer’s want honest assessment of a home which comes with experience, home values that are more accurate than ‘Zestimates’. A facilitator who can negotiate and make the deal happen in the most favorable terms possible. An agent that is knowledgeable about various loans who can give some guidance. Someone who will pick up the phone when you call and stick around after the sale.

In a nutshell, I have never convinced anyone to buy a home. Never. It is either the home the want and choose to buy, or it’s not. One of my sweet first-time home buyers refers to me as their ‘Realtor Momma’. I like taking care of my folks.

Log Cabin Home For Sale Lanexa VA

Approaching this magnificent A-frame log cabin home with its brand new 50-year GAF Roofing Sytstem installed in 2014, you will likely notice several decks. In fact, there are 4 decks if you include the crow’s nest deck at the rear that overlooks the woods and part of the shared 8 acre bass-rich pond. We may have to drag the current owner along with his kayaks, kicking and screaming from the banks. All kidding aside, there is also a spacious screened porch that adjoins one of the decks, also overlooking the pond, and a darling children’s tree house complete with electricity, windows, porch, red door, and a white picket fence.

Why Hire Me To Sell Your House?

It speaks to the question most new real estate agents ask themselves. Why should anyone hire me? I have been selling real estate for 9+ years and I too asked myself that question. When I entered #realestate I was in a new town, didn’t have the little league, PTA or social club relationships that provide you with an instant sphere of people to tap into.

Almost a decade later I still use that question as a personal accountability tool. From the beginning I decided my ‘niche’ was going to be doing things better than my counterparts. I spent a lot of time educating myself on every facet so I would know as much as possible, and developing a plan that made the most sense in getting results. These days, when I ask myself the specific question “Why Should A Seller Hire Me?”, it’s easy for me to answer. First, being passionate about what you do is very powerful. It is the driver that makes you want to show off for your clients. Look what I can, and will, do for you! Your eye is on the results, and there is something very satisfying about presenting a well-designed plan, executing the plan flawlessly, providing proof of action to your clients and finally getting them as much of what they want as possible. The icing on top is when they publicly expound upon how you benefited their lives and then become devoted lifelong clients.

Last week I took a new #TabbLakes listing BridgeWoodDrive.com in #Yorktown VA, so knowing I would be there for a couple of hours taking HDR pictures, brought along an **OPEN NOW** sign and a balloon which was placed in the yard while there. That day, the seller was also there finishing some painting and other things to get the home ready to sell and he was pretty surprised and happy that we had TWO agent showings from drive-bys, one who ultimately wrote an offer. Unfortunately for her buyer, they did not move quickly enough and we were already under contract with another buyer within 3 days of listing. Was I showing off for my client? You betcha and I loved it.

So Why Should A #Williamsburg, Yorktown, or New Kent Virginia Seller Hire Me? I am passionate, know what I am doing, have a spectacular marketing plan, I follow through, follow up, and I push hard for my clients, while playing nicely with other agents. It’s the whole package, and it works.


Real Estate Market Update

Just a quick real estate market update:

  • Fed Chair Janet Yellen signaled that the Fed is not overly concerned with low inflation. That means they may likely start raising interest rates later this year.
  • Consumer spending rose slightly in February after dropping in January, but was still considered weak. Weak spending will help keep interest rates low.
  • Recent news points to a slowdown in economic growth for the first quarter. Economic weakness means little inflation and is good for rates.
  • NAR reports that February’s pending home sales hit the highest level since June 2013. Strengthening demand signals a strong spring market.
  • February construction spending was up 2.1% from February 2014. Spending on single-family construction was down slightly but rose on multi-family home building.
  • Nationwide unveiled its new Leading Index of Healthy Housing Markets (LIHHM). According to Nationwide, the housing market is at its healthiest level since 2001.
